In-depth group conversations

The Social Safety Taskforce was engaging in discussions with students and staff to gather information for plans and recommendations to strengthen social safety. During the discussions, participants were able to exchange perspectives on social safety at the university and share what they think could or should be different at the UvA. An online questionnaire was available as well.

Performance of 'The Learning Curve'

Through the play 'The Learning Curve,' about harassment at universities, the Social Safety Taskforce wants to stimulate discussions about social safety. The play shows intimidation in academia while at the same time providing a space for exploring ways to tackle problems. The play will be performed on several campuses in 2021.

The Taskforce is also working on recommendations in the field of organisational culture, policy and communication. From early 2021, more specific attention will be paid to awareness of social safety and making it possible to discuss it openly.
